  1. Not sure if this is any help, but I too am from a very low income family and received a small bursary (~2.5k).

    Wl Movement

    Western sends out class full emails, but they have been sent out late August in past years. Also, I've heard of people in the past getting accepted in August, but it's very rare, and as you said, it would be best to start preparing for next cycle.
  3. Considering that they just dropped CARS from 130 to 129 (although to be fair, 130 was ridiculous), I would personally be surprised if they dropped it again.

    2 med school references. 1 workplace?

    It is acceptable. Two of my references were from the same volunteer organization that I've been with for ~10 years, and my application wasn't affected negatively. However, I did feel that my references were going to be able to touch on most of the canmeds, so I was comfortable with my decision.

    What is your LOC Thread

    How do you receive the speaker? Do they give it to you on the spot? Honestly, it seems like every bank has similar terms except TD is throwing in the extra speakers which is what persuaded me

    Pharmacy vs Medicine

    Oh wow. I did not know that you could apply to medical schools while you are in pharmacy. Is this the case with other professional schools as well? (Dental, law, etc.)
  9. Can confirm. I'm on the high WL, and I did not get a call.

    2017 Queen's Waitlist Poll

    I got off the waitlist but I'm also on the high waitlist for western. I'm gonna wait to see if I end up in london or windsor before making a decision.

    Should I Rewrite Mcat?

    From what I hear (from MANY people), your interview is significantly more important than your gpa or mcat scores. I mean, the mcat cutoffs are already pretty ridiculous for Western, and it would be hard to differentiate between candidates. My friend interviewed at Western 3 times, and he finally got in this year. Low waitlisted the first two times, and accepted to london this year. His gpa and mcat are near the cutoffs. All three years he had the same GPA and MCAT, but he really took the time to prep for interviews this time. I personally would not take the risk to rewrite, because I don't think Western places much value on the physics section anyways. Not to say that your interview performance wasn't great, but that is what I would look at to see if any improvements could be made. Let's hope you just get accepted this year, and don't have to worry about it.
  13. How did everybody feel about their interviews? Personally, I felt my interview went smoothly, but doubts about what I said and what I didn't say are starting to sink in.

    Judging by previous years, 2 weeks seems right. I told myself if I got a high waitlist I'd be happy and not paranoid, but here I am already wondering if this is the year that the high waitlist doesn't clear.Well I guess it'll be another 2 weeks of dank memes with sauna atleast

    "In recent years, applicants in your position on the Wait List have received an offer of admission." This is what it says in my email. We probably used the same superstitious techniques.

    Post Interview Discussion

    The last few days, especially the last few hours, have been immensely stressful, but this forum has helped me keep my sanity.I didn't have many people I could share my feelings with without making them hate me for being so annoying. This forum just let me get things off my chest, laugh, and not be so miserable in general. I hope to see all of you next year. (Hopefully in med school not premed101 )
